Eighth Day

Millennia ago,  eight great mystic entities entered into the Wager of the Octessence to determine who among them was the most powerful.  Each of them created a totem which held a fraction of their vast power,  and would transform the first human who touched into an exemplar,  a living embodiment of that power.  The entities all then had Temples created to house their totems.  Once a mortal became an exemplar,  a spell would be triggered,  drawing others to the temples,  creating eight Exemplars in all.
